Overland Equipment Presents the Eco-tilityâ„¢ Collection for Spring 2007
Rugged, Modern Utility Featuring Eco-Friendly, Sustainable Materials

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE—Chico, CA – Overland Equipment's new Eco-tility Collection features rugged, modern utility and fashionable functionality while staying focused on sustainability and eco-friendliness. The two new utility lines, the “U” Series for men and the “W” Series for women, are collections of urban-suburban bags to organize everyday lives. From handbags in the “W” Series, to secure laptop carriers in the “U” Series, these bags span life's work and lifestyle gap. Wonderful detailing, rich texture, and unique materials make these collections stand out.

Made of 22 oz (“U” Series) and 13.5 oz (“W” Series) cotton canvas Waxwear®, these bags are made for rugged city use. Waxwear® cotton canvas is coated with a wax and oil finish using century-old techniques. The wax treatment is non-hazardous, odorless, and offers superior water and stain repellency. Waxwear® is not only eco-friendly, it is also a USA made product.

Waxwear® allows everyone the chance to be an artist: rough up your bag and the fabric looks distressed; when you want a clean slate, put it out in the sun and the coating melts back to perfectly uniform. From the details to the styling, active men and women will love the immaculate quality and craftsmanship of this Eco-tility™ collection.
